A FEMALE teacher has pleaded guilty to the repeated sexual assault of a young female student.

Daphney Louise Matthews, now aged 39, sexually assaulted the student, aged under 16, and kissed and touched her on separate occasions in 2009.

Matthews stood in Melbourne Magistrates’ Court this morning and pleaded guilty to five charges after her defence counsel, Phillip Priest, QC, told the magistrate that the matter had been resolved.

The case was originally listed as a committal hearing.

Another 13 charges had been struck out, prosecutor Julian Ayers told the court.

The offences to which Matthews pleaded guilty occurred in Melbourne’s outer east and in country Victoria.

Matthews was a teacher at a school in Mount Waverley at the time.

She was released on unopposed bail and will appear in the County Court for a plea hearing in November.
